Zinedine is the result of a cross between Guidam and Unadonja. Guidam is a pure Selle Francais, one of the top ten worldwide stallions. Himself being the son of the great Quidam de Revel who still ranks in the world top 10 show jumping stallions in 2016. Unadonja was an excellent speed horse in the USA. We no longer need to introduce her father; Heartbreaker or her grandfather Burgraaf, both monuments of Northern Europe. Zinedine has proved himself to be an extremely talented horse, at the age of 8 he entered the World Championships circuit. In 2013 he successfully lead a breeding career as well as a sports career. He finished 4th at the Chantilly Grand Prix, and 5th in Neumunster. In 2014 he finished second at both the London and Paris Grand Prix, as well as finishing fifth in Shanghai. He seems to be collecting top places at the best worldwide competitions. His physique, his elegance and his amazing ease when it comes to jumping as well as his genetic strength make Zinedine one of the best modern stallions on the planet. He will suit mares with a more substantial build who may lack energy, Zinedine will bring that extra bit of blood.
Zinedine made a really spectacular debut as stallion. Right from his first foal year he presented the winner of the OS licensing in Vechta, who was later offered at the stallion market for the top prize of 215.000 Euros. Also at other licensing dates, outstandingly jumping sons of Zinedine have been part of the stallion collections. A daughter won the free-jumping competition in Verden. After initially competing in sport in Poland, Zinedine was carefully prepared by Ludger Beerbaum for upper level courses. In 2014, facing fierce competition, Zinedine took second place in the Grand Prix of Paris/FRA and London, fifth place in the Grand Prix of Shanghai, proving his unlimited talent. Later Zinedine won at the World Cup shop in Zuerich/SUI, took fifth rank in Shanghai/CHN and placed at the CSI5* in St. Gallen/SUI and at the CSI4* in Wiesbaden. His sire Guidam (by Quidam de Revel) has produced many championship offspring and was awarded as the “Stallion of the year“ 1996 in the Netherlands. Dam Unadonja has won ribbons in show jumping up to 1.45 meter with Shane Sweetnam/IRL. The Holstein dam sire Heartbreaker belongs to the world’s best show-jumping sires
Zinedine’s first crop of foals calls for a drumroll! “Foals with a very positive vibrancy, sufficient power and the necessary elasticity,” said Westphalian’s Breeding Director Wilken Treu – obviously impressed!
The highly refined and wonderfully long-legged foals also have excellent characters and horse fans all over the world have taken notice. Zinedine made a really spectacular debut as stallion.
